The United States Mortality DataBase

July 2018

This report documents progress on a multi-year project initially funded by the United States National Institutes of Health (through grant #R01-AG010245) with additional support from the Research Expanding Boundaries Pool of the Society of Actuaries. The goal of the project is to foster research on geographic variability in survival within the United States by providing access to standardized historical mortality series for the 4 Census Regions, 9 Census Divisions and 50 states plus the District of Columbia. The approach is that of the Human Mortality Database (HMD – www.mortality.org), a unique and widely used open-access collection of detailed mortality and population data for 39 countries. When ready, the life table series for the United States Mortality DataBase (USMDB) will be accessible via usa.mortality.org.
